    And the winners are.....

    Bumping this thread since I posted pics related to this contest that I unearthed earlier. Then I notice the same pics are already in the thread. D'oh! Regardless, that was some wacky times brewing all of those ingredients. And it was a fun exercise to do that kind of combination logic puzzle. Still appreciate Mr. B folks for doing that contest. Was way over the top generous, especially when they broke the tie by giving both of us the full prize.
  4. I'm down to my last few bottles of Shameless Stout that's been conditioning since September. I know it almost sounds cliche among us but this beer has gotten so much better with time! A solid stout to try if anyone has been debating.

    Mr. Beer contest winnings

    Just found some images from the contest winnings I received when Mr. Beer was bought out by Cooper's in 2012. They ran a contest, and the winner (actually, winners, as two of us tied and they gave this prize pack to two of us) received one each of everything sold on the site... one each of the extracts, hops, yeasts, etc. Also, 7 fermenters and a ton of bottles. It was a crazy day receiving all of this through UPS...

    Mr. Beer contest winnings

  7. Last week
  8. @hotrod3539, since your schedule is more restricted than ours, why don't you set the date that we hold this event? I can do just about any weekend, as long as I know a weekend or two ahead of time. @D Kristof, have you researched the beer tour busses?

    Star San

    'dont fear the foam' is the marketing line for starsan. as i am dumping the solution out of the bottles i try to swirl the bottle around to create a little vortex as it is draining. i still get some foam left behind. it's fine.
  10. True story... lol Not generally but I wont know the oncall schedule for the month until a couple days before month start...which I keep complaining about. I wish they would do a two month schedule or give us more than a couple days. Makes scheduling stuff a bit more difficult. Depending on where we do this I would probably do a Friday through Monday kinda thing for travel and such. (4 day weekend mini vacation-esk kinda thing)
  11. I imagine this up and subzero down winter weather hasn't help keep things calm and steady in your line of work. When we do this would you need a vacation day for a Saturday?

    Brewing with Coconut

    Still on topic, my wife unearthed a 1# package of coconut palm sugar (pure coconut flower blossom nectar) from the pantry. As I build my recipe for making coconut beer I'm intrigued by this as a possible adjunct. Wondering if anyone here as used this in a recipe? (Note: Coconut sugar comes from the sap of the cut flowers of the coconut palm. It does not contain the actual coconut fruit....)
  13. Sorry man but the truth hurts sometimes..... 😁
  14. Good to be around a bit! It has been a little while, work got stupid busy again...... we had a guy quit, another go out on medical leave so that's left just me to take care of about 1/3 of the state... its calming down now since we hired a couple more guys and the guy who went out on medical is coming back. 😊🍺
  15. Couple brews coming up!

  17. Nice to see you @hotrod3539. Been awhile i think
  18. Wow, that's mean... 😕😢 I'm nice to O_io State graduates. I tip extra when they deliver my pizza...

    Thanks

    @Vfwrider316 glad to see this type of post. It means we are doing something worthwhile here. Dawg
  21. Depending on when we do this, I am fine with any of these choices....
  22. Sorry, I havent voted yet...lol June is a tough month for me to try and take time off as it is busy season. Generally it is frowned upon to take vacation May-October....

    Brewing with Coconut

    I can only speak of my experience and my studies. Beyond that, I am not able to have an opinion. So if you say it is thus, I have to believe you... so no reason to "argue"

    Brewing with Coconut

    Santiam Brewery's Pirate Stout that I tried (the outstanding coconut porter that started all this) was, indeed, aged in Rum barrels from the Rogue River Brewery in Newport. So you may well be on to something there, B. My 'laundry' list of liquors is growing...

    Brewing with Coconut

    And we all know - having good head is a very important thing! Oh gosh, now I have at least 3 methods of approach to this coconut thing. Maybe I need to make three different batches, three different ways and find out what works best. ? What I do know is that done right, coconut beer is mighty tasty and I'd be very happy to concoct something that tastes good no matter how I did it. Thanks everyone who took the time to weigh in. I guess I'm still open to suggestions...why not?
